Two seasons, four wins and 15 losses later, Romeo Crennel is reportedly out as head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs. According to Matt Miller, NFL lead writer at Bleacher Report, a source inside the Chiefs organization has revealed that Crennel has been informed that he will not be back with the team in 2013. The firing ends a stint that began when Crennel took over Kansas City’s head coaching duties upon Todd Haley‘s termination after 13 games last season. Crennel was hired as the Chiefs’ defensive coordinator in January 2010. He went 2-1 after taking over as head coach last season, but would only reach the two-win mark again this year despite holding  the job for a full season. This is the second time in Crennel’s career that he’s been fired as a head coach. Crennel was also terminated by the Cleveland Browns after the 2008 season. He 24-40 in four years in Cleveland, although he guided the Browns to a 10-win, second-place finish in 2007. Crennel endured a difficult season not only in terms of on-field results, but also when it comes to off-the-field issues. He, along with general manager Scott Pioli, who is also rumored to be on the hot seat, witnessed Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher commit suicide in the parking lot of the team’s facility on Dec. 1 Crennel’s reported firing will now lead to speculation about whether Patriots head coach Bill Belichick will consider bringing him in as assistant, perhaps as early as this week — similar to the way he brought in Josh McDaniels for the playoffs last season. Source inside #Chiefs says they’ve been told that Romeo Crennel has been informed he won’t be back with team in 2013. — Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) December 31, 2012
